Kate McKinnon Remembers 'Real-Life Superhero' Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Kate McKinnon is honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg after her death.

The 36-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member, who often portrayed the Supreme Court Justice on the show, shared a statement on Saturday (September 19) remembering RBG.

“For so many of us, Justice Ginsburg was a real-life superhero: a beacon of hope, a warrior for justice, a robed crusader who saved the day time and again,” Kate shared in a statement via TV Line. “Playing her on SNL was a profound joy because I could always feel the overwhelming love and gratitude that the audience had for her. It was one of the great honors of my life to meet Justice Ginsburg, to shake her hand, and to thank her for her lifetime of service to this country.”

RBG passed away on Friday, September 18 at the age of 87, from complications due to pancreatic cancer.
